What is happening to you is normal. If the truss rod nut is completely loose then there will be no tension to counter the pull of the strings, hence the neck will pull into an upbow. The nut should be just tight enough for the neck to be flat. Does it adjust at the peghead or at the heel?
Don't keep the neck at full string tension with the truss rod completely loose for any long period of time.
I'm thinking I missed something here. :dontknow:StockwellGuitars said:Oh...hey...sorry I gave you that free advice up above...I guess that it's against the 'spirit' of the boards...
